Risks and challenges
As a small game company in business for 10 years we know the biggest challenge is meeting deadlines. So many things happen during the printing of a game that can slow up production that setting too tight a deadline can frustrate customers and reduce sales.
After production shipping and delivery become the next challenge to us. But again, with 11 years of successful projects behind us we have met and will meet the expectations of all of these projects.
As noted by a member on BoardGameGeek, "Worthington has done several KS campaigns and delivered on every one."Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
